Off To Barcelona!

I’m on my way to Barcelona to attend the Samsung #Unpacked event and the Mobile World Congress #MWC2015.

I will also be enjoying Barcelona and sharing my experience there. For those interested in following, here are my users and FB page:

I’m alone a lot. I know folks think I’m always at a party or exploring some cool stuff with cool people, but remember, my Instagram is the stuff I choose to share. I live alone. I travel alone. I work alone. Sometimes I watch a movie alone. Sometimes I even go clubbing alone.
Being alone allows you to think a lot. Thinking uninterruptedly because the free WiFi is just 30 minutes at that airport. Thinking uninterruptedly because there’s no smoking area in that terminal (the one that caters for the budget airlines).

Alfa’s Epic Reply To Lame Troll

I don’t think it’s funny to troll companies like that, specially when there are people working late night shifts to provide support. Nevertheless, Alfa’s reply was epic and spot on.

It Feels Good When Your Bank Pays For Your Valentine Dinner

50 couples in 6 different restaurants had their bills paid by Bank Audi as part of the ‪bank’s Valentine campaign #‎BankAudiLovesMe‬. The couples were surprised by my good friends and the talented Uf Concepts guys who had prepared a song for the occasion.
I thought the idea was pretty cool and well executed. Check out the [video].

It’s Confirmed! Whitney Houston Is Still Alive According To Nadine Magazine

Since a lot of people have asked me about the Whitney Houston article I shared this morning, I asked a friend to pick up the Nadine Magazine from a nearby library and see if it’s there and it turned out to be true.

As for the Whitney Houston article, it was shared by my friend Dyala but I couldn’t confirm yet if it’s a recent magazine or not. The sure thing is that Whitney Houston doesn’t have a daughter called Sarah.

Literally one day to the next, the brown paper that was covering the windows (and which promised to something to the effect of "soon, something exciting will be happening" or whatever new shops seem to say) went down, the result made me do such a double take I almost fell: There they were, prominently displayed, the covetable Thom Browne sunglasses.
